Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Berkeley: Family hotel with free breakfast and free WiFi. Located near a train station.
For many, Berkeley holidays mean a trip to the University of California. On campus, you can tour the Berkeley Art Museum, play with the hands-on exhibits at the Lawrence Hall of Science and climb the Sather Tower (aka the Campanile) for sweeping views of the Bay Area. For a relaxing walk, stop and smell the roses at the Berkeley Rose Garden.
Berkeley is also a unique place to shop. Travel to Telegraph Avenue to discover an eclectic mix of shops selling everything from classic music records and books to locally produced clothing and handmade jewellery. If you're hungry, head to Shattuck Avenue in North Berkeley and enjoy California-style pizza (this town invented barbecue chicken pizza, no big deal), a variety of cheeses, Thai food and more. When night falls, cafes and pubs around the university are always rocking.
Getting to your accommodation in Berkeley is straightforward, since Oakland International Airport (OAK) is 24 km south and San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is 40 km southwest. Most neighbourhoods are pedestrian-friendly and local bus service and the BART (subway service) are efficient; if other areas in the region are calling your name, we’ve got you covered with car hire options. Berkeley is also right near San Francisco¬—the sweet “City by the Bay”. Feel like visiting it? Luckily for you, Wotif can help you find the right accommodation in San Francisco too!
